Griptape Backbone

Griptape Backbone is a relaxing meditative first-person vaporwave skateboarding game that discusses topics such as sexuality, religion, and existentialist literature. The game uses liminal mechanics to blend both the real world and virtual together through notes left on your actual desktop to websites and an interface that already knows your name.

Besides most of the music (which I got permission to use from / coordinated with all 25+ musical artists), everything in game was made by me . Art was inspired by the vaporwave music genre's aesthetics, consumer culture, 80s malls, and existentialist literature.
